Tesla CEO Elon Musk: New York gigafactory will reopen for ventilator production

  • Tesla Says Two Employees Tested Positive for Coronavirus

The tweet comes after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio asked for Musk's help sourcing ventilators last week, which came after the Tesla CEO had tweeted that the company would make ventilators if there were a shortage. He added the company would "do whatever is needed to help in these hard times".

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has repeatedly stressed the need for more equipment - specifically ventilators - to be sent to New York state.

Tesla has been making other moves to help the USA with its shortage of hospital ventilators.

Estee Lauder has donated 10,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and vows to keep giving 10,000 a week to help alleviate the supply shortage in hospitals. Higher-grade ventilators are needed for severe cases.

News of Gigafactory 2's looming transition from solar panel facility to ventilator factory emerge less than a week after Tesla announced it would close the facility temporarily.

It is therefore not hard to see why leagues will consider restarting behind closed doors, to at least guarantee revenue from broadcasters.

"This is a critical moment for our state and our country". He also said Medtronic is looking to partner up with other companies to produce ventilators at their facilities as well.

When Elon Musk sets his mind to doing something, things happen fast, such as when he promised to build the world's largest (at that time) grid-scale storage battery in Australia in 100 days or it would be free.

Tesla employs nearly 50,000 people, around 10,000 of whom work at the company's factory in Fremont, California, which Tesla idled this week after arguing last week that it was an essential business, clashing with local officials, before agreeing to close. Earlier this week, he announced that Tesla had bought surplus ventilators in China and shipped them to the U.S. for distribution, a 1,000 of which went to California.

He also outlined points in a letter to the SpaceX and Tesla CEO. Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler - also shut down plants as nonessential businesses make efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, affecting more than 150,000 workers.

The Associated Press has reported that most company manufacturing is likely to take months. In it, Ryan urges Musk to "ramp up ventilator production at the Tesla factory located in Buffalo, New York".
